The draft Care and Support Bill has been published.
It creates a single law for adult care and support, replacing more than a dozen different pieces of legislation. It provides the legal framework for putting into action some of the main principles of the White Paper, ‘Caring for our future: reforming care and support’, and also includes some health measures.
You can find out more about the changes to the care and support system, the White Paper and the draft Care and Support Bill on the Caring for our future website.
